A Top Quality Venue for Functions

The Havelock North Function Centre in the heart of the ‘village’ is much more than a focal point for the local community. It is a top quality venue for meetings, conferences, art exhibitions, concerts, product expos, weddings and other family celebrations.

Convenient and Easy

Set in pleasant landscaped grounds with mature plantings, the Function Centre is located only a stone’s throw from shops, cafes, accommodation and other services within the Havelock North retail precinct. And a friendly ‘can do’ attitude from staff ensures that your event will be both successful and highly enjoyable.

Five Purpose Built Rooms

Purpose built and tastefully decorated, the Centre offers five rooms of varying sizes which can accommodate anything from a two-person interview to a full-scale conference for 250. All rooms have a clean light modern feel. Qualities such as being well equipped, having ample parking, ultrafast WiFi, good disability access and an on-site catering service to suit all requirements make the Function Centre the perfect place for any event. And there are not many venues that can offer a Steinway concert grand piano!

Open and Spacious Design

Designed by visionary New Zealand architect, Paris Magdalinos (1942-2008), the architectural style of this building reflects the light, open spacious feel of the Hawke’s Bay region. Opened in 1998 after years of community fundraising and with the support of the Hastings District Council, the Function Centre is a modern example of a long heritage of unique architectural works by renowned architects. This heritage is celebrated in the Heritage Trails brochure ‘Havelock North Architectural Drive’ available at the Centre.
